Title: The Perfect Girlfriend
Author: Karen Hamilton
Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.
They are meant to be.
The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.
True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…
The Perfect Girlfriend is a truly addictive, can’t-stop-reading psyschological thriller! It’s actually a fairly slow-moving story but Juliette is such a deliciously devious, complex character that I found myself absorbed in every step of the story. She’s a great character because she’s not all out ‘crazy’, she’s not a completely awful person, but she has some truly chilling traits which makes her such an interesting person to read about. Sometimes I felt (a little) sorry for her but most of the time I just continued reading on and on, in abject fascination, as things got more and more intense! Therefore you can easily imagine meeting someone like her in real life. In fact, you probably have and perhaps just didn’t quite twig…!
As I mentioned, the story is not all action, which I don’t say as a negative at all because the pace at which it does move along reflects the mounting tension of Juliette’s mood, mind and actions. I honestly can’t fault this story; though some parts are a bit more dramatic the character of Juliette is so convincingly odd that I just felt myself believing it all, and it kept me reading on page after page!
Many thanks to Wildfire Books for providing a copy of this novel on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.
